I think this still needs more work. The base should have a more conical shape, now it just looks like a roll of toilet paper. The turret should have a more sloped, chamfered edge. Just compare it to this picture:

Here is another example of someone who has done it right:

Well, that, and the fact that he suffers from mild horceface-syndrome. I think the eyes should be more centered to the face, or rather, the entire jaw and nose be raised a bit.

Great news! Especially glad to hear about the ship AI. I'd say the greatest challenge for 0 a.d. right now is that you are running out of letters in the alphabet. What will happen when you reach version Zarathustra?

Strange, there are no such issues for me. I am also sure i never named a file "banners.g2" Are you sure you extracted all the files? To get back the old banners you have to redownload the original Gekokujo and replace the banner files from it to the folder. If you want to try my copy of the textures folder, pm me and i can send it to you.

I honestly feel like all the female character designs for this game are ridiculously over-sexualized. Perhaps you should consider changing the title to "Attack of the space hookers"?

The texture could really use some more shading.. and maybe some more "depth" in the normal map. Also, that hue looks weird. Nice model though.

Hey Docm, do you need some modeling help for L'Aigle? I could help you with statics, and maybe ships. I've made lots of very accurate ships earlier based off ship plans from the national maritime museum. I can show you a portfolio if you like, or i can do a "test job" for you to judge without any pressure on you to actually use it. Any oppotunity to help you, even with brainless tasks, would be very rewarding for me.

If i could wish one thing from you, it would be to release at least one screenshot each week. It doesn't even need to have new stuff in it, just a new picture! Of the campaign map, in the midst of battle, unit standing on the fortress wall... anything. Something that could make my day more often than once a month. I would be very thankful.

Have you made proper LOD models for all your units? Because that is something i think is going to be VERY important in this game. At least 4 steps of LOD to accomodate for these amazing visuals with the huge battle sizes.

Really cool model. Is the backdrop yours too? Because it really enhances the terrain in this shot. I have to say though, i have never seen those cylinders you put on the corners on real star forts, what are their purpouse?

It's not yet approved, but you will find it here:

Only some of the banners were replaced, but i rearranged the textures so that the worst ones are gone. I also replaced all the menu screens, since i thought the white ones were a bit plain. In my personal version, some of the music is also replaced with tracks from Shogun 2, though for copyright reasons i did not include them, and i suspect that it is much more a matter of taste. Thank you for an awesome mod and keep it up!

I just thought you should know, i made my own private submod for this where i remade the banners to be more historically accurate (the right lord has the right banner etc), if you want to include them in yout mod (or just look), i would be happy to send them. They also look a million times better (no more neon colors and pixelations)

I once saw a M&B mod with animated trees.. is there any chance we could see that for L'Aigle too?

And btw, i hope you have a generous amount of LOD-models for all your units. It would really help low-end computers manage this mod. In vanilla warband, the smallest LOD-models usually have less than 50 polies.

No, actually, lorica hamata (chainmail armor) was standard for most of the ancient times, until the marian reforms in 107 BCE. Also, the oval thureos shields were more often favored by legionnaires, save for the very brief period in which the square shields were used.

Anyhow, i kinda dislike the idea of having "1st cohort legionnaire" as a unit, it sounds a bit bland.. and where are the velites? They should have tunics, javelins and wolf pelts.

About this, it is really simple programming-wise to just attach garrisoned units onto the deck. Just make attachment points on the trireme model, and then add the unit models to them - only if they are infantry ofcourse. They don't have to fight, it would just look nice if they could stand there so that you can see how many units are onboard.

I just want to add that i am currently working on a hotfix for WiF fixing stuff like paratrooper balance, japanese paras being unable to banzai, issues with shared control, issues with strategic bombers being unable to bomb on water, italian troops battling neutrals on map start, and a bunch of other things. It will be released in the coming week.

WORD!! Halo 2 is where ALL the actual canon is created. It is where we first find out ANY information about how things look on earth or within the covenant (Prophets! Admiral Hood!), ALL vessels except Halcyons and CSS-Cruisers are first featured here, it takes place on an immense diversity of worlds, and you get to play the F*KIN ARBITER!!

Stationary guns is fine, the unpredictability of random maps was propably my greatest concern with this, but as i see you have already replied to this it seems we won't be having any trouble. I know very well the problems of coding a system like this, because i once did one for wc3. The biggest issue then was related to movement - i had to make the soldiers snap to the wheels while they were pushing the cannon, and them getting killed, knocked back or otherwise interrupted could cause some conflict and needed lots of checks.

In any how, i was thinking your artillery crews were looking a bit small, hence me asking. I would suggest at least 6 men for each cannon.

I_Love_Cat Apr 24 2013, 6:31am says:

OOOOOHHH MYYYYY GOOOOODDD!!! Words cannot describe the awesomeness of this. How will they move? Do the artillerymen push them, or do you have horse carriages somehow? Or are they stationary? And how many men do you have as spare crew for each cannon? If one gets killed by a stray bullet, as they often do, it mustn't make the cannon useless because of lacking crewmen. Regardless, keep up the good work!

There were generally no real uniforms at this period, both when it came to armors and banners. The only things that were consistent within the clans were the general design of the mon, and even then there were variants. However, the only clan known to have had a uniform color pattern was the Oda clan, who prefered to dress their ashigaru in black armor with lemon clothing. So considering this, i would suggest you use these colors for the Oda banner.

Ships of the 16th century often really had that riddiculous sterns, have a look at the one from the swedish ship Wasa for instance:

I think it looks wierd because it hols a single, tall window in it instead of several detailed levels.
Nice work on the mesh, although i think the textures feel a bit cartoony.

I'd say a couple of Kongō-class battleships instead of the Yamato, they are much faster and can keep up with the carriers. Also, submarines are great support during naval battles where it is too chaotic for the enemy to hunt them down.

This mod looks fun, kinda like navyfield!
I might try it out once it is released.

EDIT: Speaking of which, will you have carriers?
